SIMON Cowell’s guilty pleasure has been revealed by his ex Sinitta.
Fans did a double-take when they discovered what the BGT boss enjoyed.
Sinitta revealed Simon LOVES Towie and they used to watch it before anyone else knew about it.
Celebs Go Dating fans were stunned with the singer, 59, revealed Simon, 63, was a huge fan of the Essex clan.
The So Macho singer, who was looking for love on the E4 dating show, revealed all when she caught up with her pal TOWIE star Pete Wicks.
Sinitta, who said she’s been to the show’s famous Suga Hut nightclub in Brentwood, said: “Simon and I, when TOWIE first came out, we used to watch it, before everybody else was screaming about it.”
She added: “And we used to talk to each other on the phone while watching it.”
Pete laughed: “The thought of you and Simon watching TOWIE makes me f****** die.”
Fans were in hysterics and flocked to Twitter to comment.
One said: “As if @sinittaofficial and Simon Cowell use to watch TOWIE together.”
Another chimed in: “As if you and Simon visited the sugar hut in Essex.”
It’s not the first time the 80s pop queen has opened up about her famous ex.
She revealed on Celebs Go Dating on Monday how Simon is protective over her and her love life.
She dated music industry boss Simon, 63, for two years until 1984.
They went on to enjoy a 20-year on/off relationship before he found love with her best friend Lauren Silverman.
Now Simon has taken on a “protective, big brother” role in Sinitta’s love life.
“Simon was surprised I was doing Celebs Go Dating,” Sinitta told The Sun ahead of tonight’s series 11 launch.
“He said ‘well, anyone they fix you up with I’ll have to vet them.’
“Simon’s got that protective big brother thing which was very sweet. “
She added: “I would like anyone I’m with to get on with Simon because obviously he’s one of my closest best friends.
“We want to hang out and we’re Godparents to each other’s children. It would definitely be nice if they got on, but we’ll have to wait and see.”
